Worst Sushi, worst owner, worst treatment

WORST FOOD AND EXPERIENCE IN A RESTAURANT I'VE EVER HAD! I order a hundred dollars worth of food and drink and mid roll I bite into either a rock or bone. I spit out into my napkin, tell the waitress /return the remainder of the roll. I'm absolutely disgusted but I feel I should give them another chance in good faith as accidents happen and ask for something that wouldn't have any chance of bone in it, I have a bi... view more

RUDEST CHEF EVER!

Usually takes forever to be served. The waitresses try to be nice, but the head sushi chef is so unprofessional and rude. I have since heard about this guy from several locals. I will never go back and never recommend this place. They charge too much money to be treated like SH*T.

Minimum order and rude service

My friends and I were wandering Abbot Kinney on Friday night and spotted Shima. We were looking for a nice, quiet place to have a drink and chat - it looked like it fit the bill. We went in, told the hostess that we wanted to have drinks and were seated at the sushi bar until a table became available. Everything was fine until we were moved to the table. It was THEN that we were informed that we needed to order f... view more

Don't Bother

This restaurant is overpriced and waaay overhyped....I was expecting premium sushi (on par with Blue Ribbon) but was served meager meager portions of very mediocre food in a cheap looking restaurant with no air conditioning.....Not horrible, but absolutely a rip-off...the table next to us was frustrated also...I was suspicious because of the microsoft word printed menus, but gave it a shot anyways....$75 later I was ... view more

Shima knows great sushi! ANKIMO!!! MMMM!

This place KNOWS GREAT SUSHI! The recipes were unique and devine. I had the best ankimo I have ever encountered on this earth from Shima. It was on special and yes, at $20 for two small, thin slices, it was so AMAZING, my BF and I ordered two plates! The baby halibut sashimi with heirloom tomato salsa, urchin risotto, sauteed mushrooms, nigori, and the snapper, spanish makeral and hamachi sushi's were heavenly! Truth... view more

crazy price, bad mood chief, ordinary food

1. crazy price - 5 slice shashimi $36,\r 2. bad mood chief - yell with anger front of customer \r 3. ordinary food - you can have same quality of food with less price, anywhere\r \r Not all that great. Yellowtail sashimi was good, but it's yellow tail. It better be good. It costs a lot.\r i thought the fish would be pretty fresh. but it was so-so. there's better ones at the same price range. . .\r \r This plac... view more

Great food & good ambiance. However, the portions were very small for the price.

Great food & good ambiance. Beware, the portions are very small for the price. Don't come here if you're hungry unless you're willing to spend $80 per person (come more for the atmosphere).

Really?

Despite being warned by our sushi-aficionado friends, we decided to give Shima a try. This was a HUGE mistake. The sushi did not taste fresh and all the dishes seemed uninspired and heavy. The pieces of sashimi lacked the delicacy and quality one would expect from a $200 meal. I would not recommend this place.
